Silk is one of the finest fibers available and creates a lovely yarn for knitting. It is a natural fiber that comes from the silk worm. The worm feeds on Mulberry leaves and creates a single filament that can be spun into long, luxurious yarn. It has a beautiful sheen and may be spun alone or combined with other fibers. Try knitting with silk yarn or a silk yarn blend, you'll be glad you did! Click here to learn more about silk.
